    Hi folks, just a quick message to introduce myself as a new member. I own a 2008 E91 123d m sport. Absolutely love it but recently had a few problems that I'm looking for help with.

    1. Stereo LCD screen freezing/going blank. This only happens occasionally and is usually when changing between radio and AUX. Car has been fitted with upgraded Alpen speakers and Parrot and not sure if this might be affecting the stereo.

    2. Last night when driving both break sensor and DSC light came onthe dash. The speedometer also dropped twice when the lights came on but the car drove like normal. I took the car home and when I started it this morning there was no lights on the dashboard. Obviously slightly concerned by this and been doing some reading on the forum since then. Seems like the fault code 5E20 (hydraulic pressure sensor internal) is quite common with the 1 series but can't help thinking the electrical problems I'm having are somehow all linked. My cousin is a mechanic and has offered to put the car on diagnostics but any help or opinions would be great.

    Hi and welcome. Is your battery good as an occasional low battery can cause all sorts of Gremlins with the electrics. You need to get the codes read to give you a better idea, preferably by a BMW spec reader.

    Hi, thanks for that. I'll get the battery checked as first port of call and take it from there. Frustrating issues as apart from that absolutely love the car!
